's proposal support, an expedited pathway for students brought to the u.s. illegally as children, and both say undocumented immigrants should submit to backseat taxes and learn english. rubio's strategy has been to play up his differences with the white house as much as possible, and it's not hard to guess why. >> he's been on the cover of time magazine, anointed the savior of the republican party. that's a lot of pressure. and i'm sure he has heard from memberships of the republican party, some of whom do not want to be saved with the kind of immigration reform he has in find. >> an obama plan led and driven by obama in this atmosphere with the level of hostility with the president and the way he goads the hostilely, i think it's going to be very hard to pass. >> if the president proposes legislation, do you think it will fail? >> of course. of course it will. >> so you see where this is going. if you're a republican supporting immigration reform you eagerly want to highlight any differences with the white house. on the other hand if you're an opponent of immigration reform, your goal is to p

discharged from the u.s. navy reserve earlier this year. in fact, just a short time ago, after serving in several overseas jobs. basically as a security officer. he was a lieutenant. he had weapons training in the navy. but not a commando, not a navy s.e.a.l., this was basic security work. nonetheless, he had two awards critically. the rifle marksman ribbon, and the pistol expert medal. this meant he had some qualifications in shooting at some expert level at particular distances or ranges. i think, though, very clear we should also understand that he had expertise through his service as a police officer. many people, many police officers serve in the military reserve, and they have a lot of weapons expertise due to all of that. still, very concerning, obviously, because of his background. >> were you able to learn anything about did the military have any information on his mental health? >> reporter: well, this would be a matter of privacy concerns. but at the moment, they wouldn't publicly release that. at the moment, very preliminary, there is no indication of that, because he was h

in the global effort to convince iran to abandon its nuclear program. six world powers including the u.s. and russia have a plan. and they're going to present it to the iranians in talks next tuesday. the goal is to offer serious economic incentives in exchange for iran's shutting down uranium enrichment facility and surrendering the stockpile of urani uranium. we have details of this new proposal. what's new about it? i know last year they tried to do this and they didn't go for it. what's new here? >> that's right. it's been about a year since the u.s. and the partners sat down with iran over the nuclear program. they've been making a good deal of progress on the developments since that time. so they're sweetening the pot, so to speak, and asking more of ire ran in return whether they sit down next week in kazakhstan. in exchange for easing the ban on the trade of gold and precious metals to iran and some nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes, iran must close its enrichment facility at a plant that is underground. the longer iran keeps this underground facility open and becomes more diffi

for secretary of state, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. that's what is written there. for the president, is this about taking care of an old friend or trying to make up for rice? >> actually, i think it's about choosing what he believes is the best person for the job and sticking by him, which i think is admirable. look, the reality here is this is about politics. this is not about benghazi. if it was about benghazi, you could have held up john kerry. they didn't. this is something that exists between republicans and senator hagel because he dared questioned them about the iraq war. so that i think is the are reality that we're facing. i think the problem with the republicans is, be how much longer can they continue to play these games on these issues and think it's not going to hurt them? in fact, it already has. they are becoming a caricature of a political party because when you admit to the american people it's not about substance, it's about a 7-year-old issue that you have a problem with, a personal issue, that doesn't necessarily create a lot of confidence that your criticisms ar

is approaching $17 trillion. here is how bad it is in 2003 the u.s. spent just above $2 trillion. this year, the estimated spending will be $3.6 trillion. a 75% rise in spending in a 10-year period with no inflation. and what do we have to show for all that spending? the economy is not much better. the poverty rate is about the same as it was 50 years ago. and salaries for working people are going down. so why are we spending all the money? for what reason? i will tell you why. take a look at this chart put out by the pew research center. it says 48% of americans want smaller government and fewer services. but among hispanics, only 19% want smaller government and fewer services. a whopping 75% of latinos surveyed. approve of bigger government and more entitlements. that's why president obama is spending the money because he knows that a coalition of african-americans, hispanic liberals willganized labor, overwhelm the republican party. so, in essence, the president is putting party politics above the good of the nation. history will record that and a few years from now when president obama'

him at the height of the campaign and said obama is going to win and the u.s. starts to adjust for that. between him winning a race that netanyahu never thought he was going to win and missing no opportunity and netanyahu himself ending up in sort of a messy situation, i think that's interesting and it's an interesting context to the visit. >> mitt romney promised he would make israel his first. >> his first. i want to quickly mention and talk about the hagel confirmation hearings, i'm interested to watch, he will make it through the committee and get confirmed, but how many republicans are going to vote for him? right now only two of 45 are on the record saying they are yes votes. probably about 20 have not said anything. my concern was we know there is not going to be a filibuster. mccain and a few others said no filibuster. that's healthy for the process, but this normalizes bad ap sigz party behavior. if they they treat this as a party line vote, they vote no. i don't want cabinet members to be party line votes. the white house's party controls the senate and what about the

in iraq but was hailed as perhaps the deadliest sniper in u.s. military history, was shot and killed on saturday by a troubled fellow soldier, a man he was trying to help. nbc news chief pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski joins us with the latest on this. what are police and witnesses saying happened here and where things went so wrong for chris kyle? >> well, police in texas have one suspect in custody. eddie ray routh, a marine corps reservist, 25 years old, who apparently, according to reports, was suffering from ptsd. now, chris kyle and other veterans there in texas would often try to independently help those with ptsd by taking them to shooting ranges to sort of blow off steam. now, according to officials in texas, this was the first time that kyle and his friend had met eddie ray routh at this shooting range about 50 miles outside ft. worth on saturday, when suddenly and allegedly, routh opened fire with a hand gun at point-blank range allegedly again killing both kyle and the other former service member. now, routh is in jail, he's expected to be charged with two counts
the surge worked, what it did was extract the united states from a war that senator hagel believes the u.s. never should have been in, so he didn't sort of have that kind of strong push back. i think that truck made a very good point about what kind of sway he is going to have in congress. you know, the calculation of having a republican defense secretary as it was when bob gates remained as defense secretary for the first two years of the obama administration was to have someone there with the credibility to say, you know, this old cold war system can die. we don't need it. we can cut the budget here and put the money in cyber or put the money in some other activity that the united states considers relevant pursuing terrorists. right now it's not clear that he has enough juice with his own party that any of those arguments would necessarily work. i think that the white house has to be wondering did they buy the kind of authority from him and the kind of bipart sfwlan approach that they had hoped for? >> david, thank you very much. chuck, before i let you go, we've about the to talk about
than the sequester. but don't put 50% of the cuts on the u.s. military. >> oh, by the way, the u.s. military is in virginia. i mean, this is a classic comment right there. you know, he wants all these spending cuts, but don't do it in my backyard. i mean, that's where they are. they're self-serving in many regards, and this is why the country can't stand government right now, can't stand the congress. >> well, look, it's total head-spinning, ed. here is the republican line. if you cut defense spending so you have fewer people building ships and things like that, that loses jobs. >> yeah. >> and frankly, it does. but if you cut transportation spending or you cut head start programs, somehow that doesn't hurt jobs. that somehow miraculously grows the economy. we know that's not the case. what republicans want to do here is what they tried in europe and failed. >> yeah. >> they tried this cut and grow. and what they got was cut and shrink. their economies are going down. they're in double-dip recessions. and that's the kind of medicine they want to prescribe here at home now. it won't

: it appears the questions on brennan go directly to the u.s. policy on drones. we had rand paul on yesterday, the senator from kentucky. he is adamant that he will not allow brennan to go forward unless he answers a simple question. and that is, whether or not it is u.s. policy and u.s. law to use a drone over american skies and target americans here at home. what is your view on that? >> well, bottom line, i think senator paul has every right to have his questions answered. you're putting someone in a position in the cia that obviously is going to be making decisions that affect everyday americans not only here but abroad. he has that right to have those questions answered. we need to have a full disclosure from the administration as to what the policy is going to be. listen, i don't have a problem when somebody leaves their citizenship at the door and they're overseas and they have taken up arms against the united states of america. and they clearly are trying to hurt americans not only here but abroad, to use drones. i've been public on that already. the question comes what about here in

generating a lot of controversy. the secret u.s. drone campaign and how the obama administration is it using it in a key weapon in the fight with suspected terrorist. there are no checks and balances and some say it gives the president a license to kill . others complain that the mere fact that the program is in place is it hypochrisy because the president and his allies are tough on the bush administration. joining us is a specialops wing man who is author of the book. naitance director. >> naitance. >> great to have you here today. it is it a busy news we wanted to talk about what is at play here? what is your first thouts when you learned that the program was in place and could target americans? >> one it is it a great idea to take a terrorist out it doesn't matter how we take them out. whether we walk up close and shoot them or hit them from a drone at 20,000 feet. but the problem is it we are targiting americans. there can never be anyone in a position to have unlateral decision making on killing americans. guys like me and the men and women of the military and the intelligence agencies
soldier, was the head of the u.s.o., served on the senate floor relations committee. he is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. and the notion that we would see an unprecedented filibuster, just about unprecedented. we've never had a secretary of defense filibustered before. there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. the republican minority in the senate seemed to think that the rule now is that you have to have 60 votes for everything. well, that's not the rule. the rule is that you're supposed to have a majority of the hundred senators vote on most bills. the filibuster historically has been used slektively for a handful of issues to extend debate. but we don't have a 60-vote rule. and, yet, that's become kmonl practice. this is just the latest example. it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan and i need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with our allies to make sure that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >>
